I dunno, whiner. Yeah, he wasn't exactly the most helpful, but whatever. We're
really sorry to have wasted your precious time, and not subserviently typed
your exact wishes.
It will be too cold anyway to plan on. That's the point.
Go away before you drop your rattle.

More to the point, the area may likely be under snow while
you're here (might not - but it will be pretty chilly), so there wasn't
much point in spending a lot of time responding. I would also point
out in the vein of my friend and mentor Lord Slime, that people
tend to get a little lazy with their info requests on here sometimes
It would not have been hard to find the information you requested

I drew the line at going to all these sites to find out which ones
will be more valuable to you in your search for information. Let
me know if you want me to check them all out for you and see
which ones have good info.
Boy, I'm just getting myself in trouble, aren't I?

The Forks is about 25-30 miles WSW of Flagstaff, Arizona, South of I-40.
You really need a map and/or specific directions, it is really easy to get
lost back in there.
The elevation is high (about 7000') but the winter in N. AZ has been
extremely mild thus far. There is probably very little (if any) snow out
there right now but you never know, it could snow 2' next week. All the
climbing is in a small canyon and although there are many faces, I would
think that sunny aspects would be the exception. Good crack climbing thou
of many different grades and not a bolt in sight.
CWM RULES (for trundling-or Trafalmador)
>We climbed at the Forks two weeks ago in T-shirts, it's
>been a dry winter.
But then you never know. Just have to check the temps
and get a little lucky.
Please try to tread lightly if you go there.
And take Rick's advice.
